Here is the car dilemma. Basically, you have the driver’s seat, passenger’s seat, a row in the back, and a trunk. In the trunk, you can fold up an extra seat, and lose half of the trunk. Now, with Leslie here, we had 5 people and everything fit nice and in the back. But now, we have lost Leslie and her 1 bag, and gained Spencer and Madeline, and 4 bags. So we gained a person and three bags
Madison sat in the back tiny seat, having to climb over the top of the second row, Spencer, Madeline, and I in the row, and Anna in the front because her back hurt. We got out of Barcelona pretty simply and started the fun journey to Andorra. Anna’s back started really hurting. I mean really really really hurting. She was to tears at some points. Not fun at all. Then, the road to Andorra was straight up the Pyrenees so it was curvy, and horrible so I got car sick. Didn’t throw up, but man did I want to.
We got into France without even realizing it (seriously NO border notification AT ALL). At least when we got into Andorra, we had to drive through a little border control thing (didn’t have to show anything, but at least there was some type of structure). Pas de la Casa is RIGHT on the border (you can cross a small mountain and be in France, and on our map it is ON the border line)
We walked around for a while and found the place we’re staying at. It’s a time share that Mom’s friend traded for since he wasn’t going to get to use his this year. So, we came up here, the kids took a nap, while Mom and I went to the store and got stuff to make for dinner. The guy here had told us that everything closed at 8, but there would still be restaurants open. Well, the kids walked around after they got up and couldn’t find any, so we made pasta for dinner. We got some great capers at the store, and so the pasta got even better when we put those on it. Then we just kind of goofed off, read, etc. here.
